    He got my message and sent out the receiver yesterday afternoon. It's gonna have to all come in by this Saturday, or it'll be another week before I can get it all reinstalled.

    Started on the fiberglassing process today, got all the dimensions measured and got all of the supplies together. I am having a friend of mine do it all for me. I will have to go without the bezel for a few days, so I will pull out my radio when I do that, because I don't want to run the risk of it getting stolen. On the plus side, I might actually pay attention to my driving for once. LOL Should be able to begin the molding process Tuesday(Monday's bad for both of us) if I can manage to get away from the house for about 2 hours. Also plan on fixing some wiring while we're waiting on the fiberglass to set. Planning on making it all look as OEM as possible(paint it matte black, maybe texture it like the rest of the dash if it's not too time consuming). I should have everything in by the end of the week. I'll post updates as things occur and arrive.

    About to go and do some more fiberglassing, but first, an update...

    Waiting for RMA on my MotherBoard... IDK what happened on it, but it still has bioStar's 1yr warantee, so I'm waiting on that. The processor came in today(!), but now I don't have a motherboard....

    Will post pix of fiberglassing.

    Just remember to be careful with the next MoBo. They are very delicate when it comes to bumping them and stuff. If you have to do any changed to it, make sure power has been disconnected 100%.

    It's probably gonna be a while on the RMA, it seems like they're not gonna be very cooperative. I'm still expecting an email from them with instructions for the RMA. But on the + side, Saul and I got some work done, but no fiberglassing yet.

    Pix:

    Saul cutting a piece of metal for a brace


    Saul grinding the "pills" off the mounting(DIN) bracket


    Test fitting the brace


    Test fit of assembly(after welding the brace on)


    Grinding it all smooth


    Measuring the Lilliput


    Mounting the Lilliput bracket


    Test fitting the Lilliput


    Final







    Wire repair


    All installed(had to hack up bezel for all to fit and to be ready to fiberglass next time)

    That actually looks pretty good. That is the reason I went with 4 EBY701s, it is so easy to get them looking factory without that many mods. Only thing left it to do your bezel. The EBY701 and the HU look like they were made for each other.

    I know, huh? Saul and I were freaking out about that. As soon as I can get away from home again for 2 hours, we should be able to wrap it all up then I can leave the bezel and bracket with Saul so he can finish up. Another hour after that, and it should all be done. He's doing this for me in exchange for me fixing/rebuilding his computer. I'm getting ready to call BioStar again and see WTF their problem is. they never e-mailed me instruction about the RMA....

    I got the instructions from BioStar, I have to pay to send it back, so I'm saying screw it and I'm gonna get a bigger, better board(Socket 478) if I can find one cheap enough...

    Maybe you'd be interested in something like the very-low-power-usage Intel D945GCLF2 Mini-ITX motherboard; it's what MeeM just put in his system. It has the Atom 330 Dual-Core processor and 945 graphics. You can find it for under $90 shipped. Add 2GB DDR2 667 memory SODIMM for around $30 shipped, and you're in business.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.
